Goodreads asked James M. Jackson:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

James M. Jackson The book I am answering about is ANT FARM. When I first started thinking about what became the Seamus McCree mystery series, I considered different ways an actuary could cook up financial crimes. Then I turned that question on its head. What kind of crime would an actuary uncover that would cause someone to kill him. So I switched the actuary from being the crook to being the victim.
